How to Keep Your Air Conditioner Running Well Through the Fall

Cooling

Just because the calendar tells us it’s falltime, doesn’t indicate that you will be done using your air conditioner or cooling system still. We’re in the time of year when everyone goes back and forth between AC and furnace usage, but when your air conditioner has already put in a lot of exertion through the summer, it still needs a little maintenance before you make the full switch to heating. Keeping on task with your air conditioner maintenance can make a world of a difference in the comfort of your home. That, along with these other suggestions, can keep you comfortable until it finally cools off:

Turn up your thermostat temperature.

Turning up your thermostat temperature during these days moderate outdoor temperatures can still keep you comfortable indoors. Turning off your air conditioner completely won’t save you energy in the long run, but instead it actually makes it harder to turn your system back on when you need it again next fall. Setting your thermostat to an acceptable temperature is a good way to maintain a balance in your home as warmer weather arrives.

Clean around your outdoor unit.

The winter can leave excess debris and gunk by your outside unit, especially if there has been snow or lots of rain throughout the season. If you haven’t had the time to clean up your post-winter yard, at least confirm that the area around your system is clear. Debris can hinder air-flow for your air conditioner, causing your system to work harder than it should.

Stay the course with air conditioner maintenance.
